Rated 2 out of 5 by from LED issue Our 9178T-DST was installed in November 2015 by a plumber as part of a kitchen remodel. We continue to have issues with the LED light feature. The same plumber replaced a part under warranty within the first year and said he was told that part (the ring with the indicator light, I believe) is not to get wet?? LED feature worked for a short bit and has been out since. New batteries have not solved it. Wire is not loose so I believe connection is good. The LED was a factor in buying this faucet but has been disappointing. Please advise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this faucet! This is the best thing I ever did for myself in the kitchen. It's so handy to simply touch the faucet rather than getting the lever messy when working around the sink. Works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing But Trouble with this Faucet! I bought this pretty faucet for a client. The handle is sticky. With small children it is a disaster because the temp is so hard to control. Seems that the water is always either too cold or scalding hot. I replaced the faucet and the same problem remained. Even though Delta replaced for free, the plumber cost several hundred dollars. Twice. Skip this faucet!!!!

How can I switch the faucet to manual mode?

Asked by: Lisa
Thank you for your question, Lisa! The faucet can easily be put into manual mode by removing the lid of the battery box while the faucet is running. For putting the faucet in manual mode permanently, please refer to page 17 of the maintenance and installation manual for your model. https://media.deltafaucet.com/MandI/92834%20Rev%20F.pdf Best regards, Edward

Will the faucet work if the power goes out?? Ours is hardwired and we don’t use the battery pack. 

Asked by: Jill
Thank you for your question, Jill. We recommend connecting the battery pack as a backup. The faucet will not work by touch if the the power goes out and the batteries are not installed. You may use the battery box to turn the faucet on and the remove it to put it into manual mode. If you are unable to activate it by touch, you may also bypass the solenoid assembly completely by connecting the pull-out hose directly to the faucet. Best regards, Jon

Typo in my last question. Here’s what I meant to ask. Does the faucet still work when the POWER goes out?? Ours is hard-wired and we don’t use the battery pack. 

Asked by: Jill
Hi, Jill! Thank you for your question. The Delta 9178T-SP-DST will not work if the power goes out. We do recommend to keep your battery pack installed as a back up just in case the power does go out. Best Regards, Rosanna

Will the faucet still work if the owner goes out?? We have ours hard-wired and don’t use the battery pack. 

Asked by: Jill
Hello Jill, Thank you for your question. The Delta Leland Touch2O Kitchen 9178T-SP-DST faucet is designed to only activate when touched. We recommend to turn the handle to the off position if leaving on vacation or for an extended period of time, but you can leave it on/open for day-to-day use. Best regards, Tanya

When the power goes off will the faucet switch to manual operation??? And when it comes back on, if the faucet is in the “on” position, will the 4 minute rule apply???

Asked by: Jill
Hello Jill, Thank you for your question. If you manually turn the faucet off, you would have to manually turn it back on. If the water is left running for 4 minutes with no interaction, it will automatically shut off (as a safety feature). Best regards, Tanya

Can I leave my faucet in the “on” position all of the time or should I move it to off when I’m done in the kitchen?

Asked by: Jill
Thank you for your question, Jill! A Delta Touch20 faucet can be left in the on position when not in use. In the event of an accidental activation, the faucet will shut off after 4 minuets. Best regards, Edward
